Digitally remastered using a custom built, Dual-DAW, nicknamed Bertha, by on February 12, 2004.

There was an encore from another source, but it was so awful sounding I chose not to include it.

Dropout at 1:05 of Around and Around.

Subject: Fix for LL Dropouts
I agree with other reviewers that this is the cleanest version (as the Bertha usually is). However, to correct for the dropouts in LL from 1:11 to 1:15, substitute the LL > Supp from the "Anonymous" SBD (thank you, JCotsman). This isn't an AUD patch--the dropouts just aren't on this SBD. Unfortunately, the Gans-Redbeard version has the same dropouts.

If public uploads were possible, I'd add my patched version. If anyone who has access wants the files:

Great second set. I like the song selection. But who cut the f-word out of wharf rat?

improvement over the other source for this date. You really get the feeling you are in a hall with this version. I like it.

Superb Bertha Remaster cleans-up bass and kick nicely and there is no appreciable hiss.

Was lucky enough to witness the band one in spades that night.

There some cuts and drop outs in the recording and there's some lapses in concentration on the band's part, but overall, it's the epitome of liquid fire GD at their shredding best. The entire second set is resplendent in urban atmospheric glory and evanescent in display. Truckin' and Around are major skullf**ks.
